Ethereum cofounder Vitalik Buterin got the contract party started on November 5, 2020, when he deposited 3,200 ETH into the contract according to Etherscan. At the time of deposit, Buterin’s initial spend cost around $1.3 million and today it’s worth over $8.3 million. In fact, many of the validators that deposited at that time, saw significant gains during the six months after the Beacon Chain launch.

Data from Dune Analytics further shows that out of the 108,461 transactions sent to the Eth2 deposit contract, there’s 27,100 unique depositors. Beaconcha.in/charts data shows as of May 30, approximately 152,261 validators are recorded.

Over a Million Ether Added to the Eth2 Contract Last Month

From November 19 to the 27th, the ETH deposits started to skyrocket northbound. Around March 13, 2021, Eth2 deposits slowed down and started picking up steam again on May 1st. On that first day of May, there was 4.1 million ether locked into the contract, which means it’s increased by 26.8% since then.
